SSA 28-2014 aims to promote the development, redevelopment, operation, and promotion of the Six Corners Shopping District for the economic benefit of all businesses and property owners within the SSA in alignment with the Six Corners Master Plan. The SSA Commission will focus on advocacy for the owners of property and businesses within the SSA, functioning as one unified voice. The SSA will be promoted as an exciting place to live, learn, work, and play through collaborative efforts that involve area businesses, public and private institutions and property owners.
Six Corners Association strives to enhance the appearance of SSA 28 through beautification efforts. This includes maintaining landscaping, adding public art and installing holiday decorations.
In order to attract customers and promote the Six Corners Community, Six Corners Association contracts professional marketing and PR services that any SSA business may use. Additionally, we engage the thousands of local residents through weekly newsletters, active social media platforms, and promotional campaigns.
Six Corners Association hosts 20+ unique events annually that cultivate place and create significance in experience. These events help to collaboratively foster a sense of community that yields positive growth for local businesses and the larger neighborhood.
